'Seal of approval', Namibia
I didn’t think we’d stay for very long at the Cape Cross seal colony. However, after walking around for 10 minutes, I realised what a photogenic place it was. I climbed over onto a wooden walkway, which provided unbroken views of the colony. When I started lining up for the shot, the main seal turned towards me and let out a huge groan – giving me the perfect opportunity to take the photo. It was taken on a Canon EOS M6, 30mm lens. Exposure time 1/1,000, aperture F 16.
